    Default Rep Watch Quality

    I bought a Villeret Quantième Complet 8 Jours SS Complicated Function OMF 1:1 Best Edition from one of the trusted dealers after looking through the posts here. The watch arrived yesterday and looks very nice. I wound it and then was setting the time and the second hand fell off and now is lodged in the moon phase display. I understand that I should not expect gen quality; however, I didn't expect a hand to fall off before it was even worn.

    I bought this after reading an article on one of the news sites about the quality of the new replicas and some of the posts here. Is this just a fluke, or should I expect that any rep will be an accident waiting to happen?

    On the positive side, it has kept perfect time since winding last night.

    I have contacted the TD and I am sure they will stand behind it, but this is something that I really did not expect. A $50 Seiko does not have these kinds of problems.

    Is this something I should expect if I bought any other reps?

    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like you had bad luck with your purchase.

    An update -

    I took the watch to a local jeweler had the hand put back on. It now runs and looks pretty good; however, I have another disappointment in that hand winding does not seem to charge the watch and if you do not constantly wear it, it will run down from night until morning. I don't know if I just got a bad version or if this is something to expect.

    My plans for buying a few more reps have been curtailed. I am interested in hearing if anyone has had similar problems.

    Thanks.
